This is following Government’s announcement that parts of the Waikato region will move down to Alert Level 2 from midnight Tuesday (16 November). The Waikato team relocated to Bay of Plenty earlier in the season due to COVID-19 restrictions in the Waikato region and will return to Hamilton ahead of this weekend’s match.
Steve Lancaster General Manager of Community Rugby said, “All teams have been impacted this season with varying levels of uncertainty and challenges. The Waikato squad has spent the past six weeks away from home so it is great they’re able to return to their home ground for the Bunnings Warehouse NPC Premiership final.”
The Bunnings Warehouse NPC Premiership final between Waikato and Tasman will operate under Ministry of Health Alert Level 2 guidelines, with limited bubbles allocated by Waikato Rugby Union. For more information on Alert Level 2 restrictions head here.
